a native of Morado, this young man wanted become a Jedi Knight so badly that he tried to scrape up enough credits to buy a lightsaber on Nar Shaddaa. In desparation, Nyo entered into a sabacc match with the Herglic gambler Doune, and lost all but a single credit. Nyo was "rescued" by Kinnin Vo-Shay, who wagered the last credit and eventually won more than 200,000 credits from Doune. Nyo and Vo-Shay then traveled to Nar Shaddaa to purchase the lightsaber, which Nyo had already secured with a downpayment, only to find that Doune had beaten them to the Smuggler's Moon and purchased the weapon out from under him. Nyo was enraged and dismayed, until Vo-Shay offered to try and win the weapon from the Herglic in a winner-takes-all sabacc match. Vo-Shay purposely lost the match, giving Doune the amulet he wore around his neck as the winnings. Doune then gave up the lightsaber, claiming that he no longer needed it. Vo-Shay then introduced Nyo to the real source of his luck, the disembodied Jedi Master Aryzah. Aryzah and Vo-Shay asked Nyo to join them as part of their crew, agreeing to help Nyo learn more about the Force.
